I like it!
I want to sew a carrying bag for them. Can some suggest a durable fabric to use? And where I would buy it..?
That's just what I would do

Cole, did you larks head the pipe rope onto the hinge? I can't tell if there is a shackle there or not. If you did larks head to the hinge, I would suggest getting a shackle for both ends or check for abrasion frequently. If you don't have a shackle, PM me an addy and I'll send you a couple.
Just a few ideas. I angled the ends of mine, as olddog pointed out. This way they can't spread any more than the angle allows and I don't need spread limiters. Then I added rubber feet to protect my floor, and to eliminate slippage on slick surfaces. I run whoopies through the shackle attached to the end caps and join them in the middle with a carabiner.
this ebay seller.
It's really nice stuff. A little heavy but not like 1000D. They sell by the yard and are pretty darned reasonable. This is my only experience with them but I've heard others say they were good too.
They have some canvas colors and some camo too. Took a week to get it, but it was worth it for my project.
Thanks you for the supplier! I like the material too.
